games are what washington is all b. president obama has proved himself very good to play this game. he has a strong hand right now. in the current situation with the $16 trillion in debt both republicans and democrat vs. plenty of blame. but it's kind of unusual in this particular case to have president obama complaining about the sequester, since bob woodward's book clearly pins the impetus for the sequester on the white house. the white house came up with this back before the election, because president obama really didn't want to have another big fight about the debt ceiling and everything and he wanted to give some sort of cuts to republicans in order to get past the election. and then he succeeded and here we are now where these cuts are about to take effect. we've kicked the can down the road a couple of times now, and now that he's securely reelected he really doesn't want to have these cuts go into effect. and he's desperate to find some other way of lessening the concerns of republicans who are very concerned about the exploding costs of the government. jon: if both sides agre
